New Wellcome Library home page

Today we unveil Wellcome Library’s new home page. We want to give you the answers to your most frequently-asked questions on the very first page of our website. So our address, contact details and visiting information, including our opening hours, are clearly spelled out. We’ve also given you easy links to your most popular topics, such as joining the Wellcome Library and ordering material from our closed stores.

You now have a prominent single search box to help get you started searching and browsing across our collections. We’ve retained links to the Library catalogue, the Archives and Manuscripts catalogue and Wellcome Images if you prefer those or want to do more advanced searching.

Our news and blog entries stay central to make it easy for us to keep you in the loop for all things Wellcome Library.

We’ve kept the lovely selection of images for the home page to showcase some of our fantastic holdings. These now link directly to Wellcome Images so you can find out more about each image with a single click.

We’d also like to thank the Library members who gave us their time whilst we were developing and testing this new design.

And if you’re wondering what we used to look like? Just head over to the UK Web Archive to find out.
